Are these good for stand up shower ? Been using those 10 year caulking from Home Depot. They still see molds and turn black. Will these be better choice ?

oh nevermind, these are filler before caulking

This is backer rod - basically you use something like this to fill up most of a gap so that you don't have to dump a bunch of tubes of caulk into the gap. You WILL need to "finish" this with caulking, but less.

Don't let the name fool you, though.

In situations where moisture or temperature fluctuate, this won't work. It also won't work with floating floors.

You're better off getting DAP Extreme and not have to worry about where you're applying it.

Out of curiosity (and because I just used something similar around some windows yesterday...) why wouldn't this work with temperature fluctuations?

I used this all around my in ground pool, in the gap between the steps to my porch and between some ugly gaps in some concrete slabs by the pool. I pushed it in the gaps and used self leveling caulk on top. This will be the 3rd winter and it's still going strong

I wouldn't use something like this unless I absolutely had to (better to actually fix the underlying issue), but one application I was thinking this is used is in patching cracks in pavement and concrete. In that situation you're kind of stuck.

I was mostly referring to shower usage, but generally speaking: Trapped moisture is usually the culprit. Where a full bead of caulk would usually go in and fill crevices, this leaves a channel.

I would recommend Great Stuff for Small Gaps on any window work where the gap is over 1/4in. You can caulk over it pretty cleanly.

For everything smaller, DAP Extreme will get in and fill that empty space. It's also stretchy enough to do tubs without having to fill them first.

See my other comment, but I was specifically replying to use in bathrooms.

The wrong application can result in a bad caulk job and places for mold to grow.
